Where there is love than there can never be a goodbye, for the love we have for others within us will always and forever be a part of our spirit.

Prayer Prairie

When our body goes back to the loving arms of Mother Earth and our spirit soars upwards to the Great Mystery, this love in our spirit will guide us to our loved ones that have passed before us.

Love is the sacred binding that gives us our eternal connection to the spirit of others, it is like a magnet in the seen and unseen.

It could be people, animals or anything that has a spirit within. If there is a bond of love then they will be there to welcome you in the next world.

The First Nations have never had a word goodbye in their languages, but it has always been “until we see each other again.”

So never say goodbye to the ones you love when they are ready to pass to the next world but say, “until we see each other again.”
